Gaming Classics: Interactive Fiction

March 16, 2010 4 comments

Interactive Fiction games, or IF games, started the genre that we know today as adventure. IF games were originally text based (I say originally because modern ones have some graphic elements), relying on storyline/plot rather than graphics and game play. The best of the best of these text based games was Infocom. They started the who genre with the game series called Zork, which can be downloaded for free from their website. There has been many other companies that have created IF games, even to this day.

I’ve been quite addicted to these games and wanted a way to bring them with me. I happen to own a Black Berry, so I did some research and found this. It’s lacking a few features and the text sometimes gets scrambled, but its well worth trying out.

But definitely check out one of the many original IF games!
